    Have been going to Sportsman's Lodge for 40 years. It is so improved over past years. Friendly staff, child friendly, accomidating, clean enough, pool kept kids entertained and marina so close. No complaints here. Will hit it again next year.

    The room was ok for a fishing trip. Nothing special by a long way. But is what I would expect for someone just for a couple days to go fishing. The fishing guide I had given a $100.00 down payment to ( Jerry Schwartz ) did not even show up or give us a reason for not showing up. Elmer...

    I have leased camping sites at other locations up and down Kentucky Lake; and Sportsman's Anchor Marina is by far the cleanest, most well maintained, and managed location on the lake. The owners top priority is their guests, and anyone can witness that first hand by observing the staff go above and beyond all means to make sure guests are...

    This place is not what I would call a resort by any means. I don't hardly ever book at a place that has a no refund policy, but I did I can now understand why the have a no refund because once you get here you may not want to stay. We have a 40 foot motorhome and I probably...

    Horrible experience for the whole family! I have never been treated this bad at any place I have ever visited. And I've stayed in tents in Iraq and Afghanistan! Owners act like wardens at a prison. Gun toting night security guard patrolling and harassing you all the time. Bad location tucked at back of cove, you can't even see the...

    We have been vactioning at this resort for over 15 years and since the new owners took over in 2006 this resort has become the closest thing to a Nazi Camp I have ever experienced.

    “If your looking for a seasonal spot for your camper the owners allow you to build a deck at your site and plant flowers to make your spot homey. Some folks have had concrete patios put in place at their sites as well. The owners just ask that you ask them first because of underground utilities and such. This place is very accommodating to its guests.”
